Participants' View

  • Mike Brosnan
  • Mike Brosnan

    Assoc. Senior Director
    Student Registration & Financial Services

    "As a participant in the IPOG group for the last few years, as well as an Administrator who deals with the Financial Aid offered to our Undergraduate International population; I have found the contact with our International  Students  to be invaluable. Awareness of the ever evolving issues that our students encounter, both Aided, and Non-Aided alike, provides valuable insight as to the direction that our programs should take over the next few years to provide the best service and guidance possible to this important segment of our student population."

  • DeAnna Cheung
  • DeAnna Cheung

    Technology & Operations Officer
    Graduate Student Center

    "The International Partners and Outreach Group does exactly that: partner and outreach.  Before IPOG, we knew that an office existed to support the Penn international community, but who do they support exactly and how were questions we couldn't answer in any great detail.  IPOG provides a forum to bring awareness to and discuss the issues facing international students and scholars.  Even more than that, IPOG provides a forum for partners to meet and refresh their relationships across the University.  It is this granularity that makes IPOG special - the ability to remind us that we're not just discussing a "population" and that we ourselves are not just a "service sector"; but rather, at the heart of it all, we are individuals meeting, understanding and supporting each other."

    Clinical Professor / Director of Office of International Relations
    School of Dental Medicine

    "Through its newsletter and invited gatherings of faculty and staff, IPOG provides great opportunity for our school to make other members of the Penn community aware of SDM programs. The ISSS Director and his staff are always open to questions and input and are willing to assist in addressing a wide variety of problems affecting our international students. "

    Senior Director, International Institutional Initiatives
    Development and Alumni Relations

    "IPOG is a terrific forum for meeting student leaders and understanding the unique perspectives that they bring to Penn. Our meetings enable staff and administrators to appreciate the rich cultural diversity that exists on campus. Ultimately, we want our students to graduate and to be enthusiastic alumni who remain engaged with Penn throughout their lives and around the world. "
